… aka the lessons I learned from Timothy Goodman. Wait who? And why? And why would you want to get away with anything?
I was probably the only person going into the presentation who had no idea who Timothy Goodman was. I chose to attend his presentation for a professional development portion for one of my classes.
The website said he was from New York City, so I knew it was going to be good. You know I haven’t gotten over NYC and it’s already been 4 years. Probably never will, but anyhow…
I looked him up on Twitter, and thought cool – he has a lot of followers. I had no idea what I signed myself up for. But in the end what it was and what I got out of it was so much more than I expected.
The presentation started with dick jokes, a lot of them, and they were quiet funny to be honest.
But then he mentioned a person who, when asked “What do you do for a living?”, said “Whatever I can get away with!”.
So how do you do that?
1. Know the rules
2. Have audacity
3. Don’t ask for permission
4. Listen to yourself
5. Get in your work
6. Stay young
In the end, finding my voice is what matters, even though reality and expectation don’t always line up.
So never stop making, because anything can be your canvas!
